Thus, ad aperturam,— " Thou remember'st Since once I sat upon a promontory, And heard a mermaid on a dolphin's back, Uttering such duleet and harmonious breath, That the rude sea grew civil at her song, And certain stars shot madly from their spheres, To hear the sea-maid's music.
Էջ 421 - near her highest noon, Like one that hath been led astray Through the heaven's wide pathless way, And oft, as if her head she bow'd, Stooping through a fleecy cloud. Oft, on a plat of rising ground, I hear the far-off curfew sound, Over some wide watered shore, Swinging slow with sullen roar.

Why may not imagination trace the noble dust of Alexander till he find it stopping a bunghole ? Horatio. 'Twere to reason too curiously to consider so. Hamlet.
